As admission decisions start to come in, let's get a tradition going here so we can share the programs we applied, the admits/rejects we received and the program we are ultimately joining.
Let's keep the format uniform and discussions on their separate programs threads. Please share details on each application timeline on the Tracker.
Below is an example.

Admits: MIT MFin, NYU Tandon MFE, CMU MSCF with 20K scholarship, NYU FinMath
Rejects: Baruch MFE, UCB MFE, Princeton MFin
Pending: Rutgers
Joining: CMU MSCF
Will there be another version of this thread for 2020?
